while i might be a legend.

i am also very real.

In the 1910s, I was one of the world’s most influential bartenders, tending bar at
the prestigious St. Louis Country Club, wowing fans - including presidents - with
my signature cocktails. Some people even say that I “wrote the book” on cocktail
recipes. (And that’s not far from the truth.)

In 1917, I published “The Ideal Bartender,” one of the most influential cocktail
recipe books of all time.

That’s right, at a time when a Black man could hardly walk into a “white” bar, I
was the reigning king. I was not only allowed IN the bar, but people came to the
bar FOR me – in order to sample my cocktails, shake my hand, and get me to sign
my book for them. (Actually, I was the first Black American to publish a cocktail
recipe book.)

I realized a few things behind the bar:
1. Superb cocktails inspire all types of people to congregate.
2. Being a true Tastemaker is about breaking down preconceived ideas, and
bringing new flavors together.
3. The same is true for bringing people together.

This is my

This Is My

Old Tom Gin

With (A Touch Of) sweet Lime

AS PROOF OF MY IMPECCABLE TASTE, my Old Tom Gin is imported from a two-centuries-old London distiller. And, in keeping with my reputation for creating distinctive cocktails with exotic fruit, my gin is delicately infused with the peel of a curious Chinese citrus called “Sweet Lime.”
